About the Career Transition Partnership

We are proud to be the official provider of Armed Forces resettlement for 25 years

The Career Transition Partnership (CTP) is a partnering agreement between the Ministry of Defence and Right Management. Ltd, who is the global career and talent development expert within ManpowerGroup.

We provide resettlement services for those leaving the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force and Royal Marines regardless of time served. We also operate as an intermediary service for employers wishing to hire from the Service leavers and veterans pool of talent. These relationships open up routes to employment which are accessed by leavers through our jobsite, CTP RightJob and a range of online and in-person employer events.

To date, we’ve helped over 300,000 Service leavers make their move into civilian life and supported thousands of organisations looking to employ ex-Service personnel.

And we very much look forward to helping you too.

Service leavers - how the CTP helps you

Resettlement is an MOD entitlement available to all ranks of the UK Armed Forces, with the sole aim of helping you to make the transition as smoothly as possible, and to achieve your goals.

We’re here to provide you with flexible support from two years before discharge, through to two years after. We’ll give you all the tools you need to market yourself confidently to employers and to get the most out of life outside the forces.

From creating a CV through to learning interview skills, and researching and applying for jobs; what we offer can benefit you not just with your first civilian job, but throughout your working life. You’ll find more about what we do and which programme you can access, under Get Started.

“Armed Forces leavers offer an exceptional work ethic, commitment, and ability to work in some of the most challenging conditions possible. With an unrivalled approach to team working and leadership as well as a multitude of skills, experiences and knowledge; they are an asset to any company.”

Employers – what the CTP can do for you

Coming from a highly skilled and professional career in the military, Service leavers make highly skilled, committed and capable employees offering a wide range of transferrable skills and experience. Not surprisingly, they’re in big demand by many organisations – and the good news is that we make it easy for you to locate and employ the right talent for your organisation.

For more details, have a look at our dedicated Employer page, which will explain all the advantages of hiring from the Armed Forces. You can also add vacancies – at no cost - to our CTP RightJob database and search for the right candidates, based on your key criteria.
